Tyler Perry has spoken out about the true nature of the relationship between Meghan and Harry. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s friendship with the actor and producer has strengthened over the past few years. The US celebrity provided Meghan and Prince Harry with a temporary home and security details during their first few weeks in California in the spring of 2020. 

More than two years later, speaking about the two non-working royals, Mr Perry expressed his happiness at “where they are now”.

Appearing on SiriusXM’s Sway In The Morning with Heather B and Tracy G, the actor provided insight into the couple and the state of their relationship.

He told host Sway Calloway: “I’m gonna tell you something. Those two people love each other.

“I’m seeing it up close. And you can’t fool me. I got the Holy Ghost. You can’t fool me.

“I know what’s real. They really genuinely love each other. So I’m just so happy to see where they are now.”

This isn’t the first time Mr Perry has spoken publicly about Meghan and Harry.

The actor, who is currently promoting his film A Jazzman’s Blues, spoke earlier this month about his decision to help Meghan and Harry as they were relocating to the US in late March 2020.

In an interview with US broadcaster NBC, he said: “It was a very difficult time for them and what I know about the two of them, that I wish the world knew, is how much they love.”

He added that he is searching for a relationship similar to the one shared by the Sussexes, saying: “If I don’t have that, what she and Harry have, I don’t want it – that’s really amazing.”

Meghan, Harry and their son Archie Harrison headed to California in late March 2020, days before they were to officially step down as full-time working royals.

The young family remained at Mr Perry’s house for a few weeks before moving into their own mansion in the star-studded neighbourhood of Montecito, in Santa Barbara.

In May last year, Prince Harry opened up about his stay at Mr Perry’s home as he was criticising the “feeding frenzy” surrounding celebrities in Los Angeles.

Appearing on the Armchair Expert podcast by actor Dax Shepard, the Duke said: “Now living here, it’s a feeding frenzy here.

“We spent the first three and a half months living at Tyler Perry’s house – he let us stay.

“The helicopters, the drones, the paparazzi cutting the fence, it was madness.

“The response was, ‘well, what do you expect if you live in LA?’

“Well, first of all, we didn’t mean to live in LA, this is a staging area before we find a house.

“But how sad, if you live in LA and you’re a well-known figure, you just have to accept it?”

More recently, Meghan spoke of how her friendship with the US producer blossomed.

In an interview with The Cut magazine released in August, the Duchess said Mr Perry had reached out to her after her nuptials in May 2018 despite the fact they had never met in person.

She recalled Mr Perry saying he was praying for her and saying he understood the symbolic weight of their wedding, with the Duchess becoming the first mixed race working member of the Firm.

Meghan added the celebrity told her to call him in case she needed support or advice – which she did while she was spending time in Canada with Harry and Archie ahead of their exit from the Firm.

The Duchess told her interviewer Allison P. Davis: “Sometimes, you can tell your life story to a stranger on a plane as opposed to some of the people that are closest to you.”
